All this is based on my behaviour with previous kindle releases.

So yes I probably will be upgrading from the paperwhite.
Meh so things seem to be going pretty much as I predicted lol

I think a new poll should be conducted now that we know something about the new PW2 and now that we know it is the ONLY new Kindle introduced. This old, outdated, highly speculative poll was a waste of time.
Yes indeed, it was a waste of time, given that the new KPW actually has even LESS improvement than I thought it would have. All improvements that matter are with regard to software. All the hardware improvements are a bit so-so, something most people wouldn't even notice, even with the two KPW's side-by-side.

Hopefully the screen lighting has been improved, but I'm skeptical. Too bad these polls are not designed to allow voters to change their votes as that would make it more valid.

BTW, I justed posted a new poll to reflect out thoughts now that the PW2 has been officially introduced for pre-order. It is a multiple choice poll.
